Britain"s Got Talent 2012: Simon Cowell has special lights to flatter him on talent show

You're so vain, you probably think this show is about you! Simon Cowell has special lights to flatter his best angles on BGT

You'd think the layers of stage make-up might be enough.

But Simon Cowell has reportedly gone the extra mile to look good on television by having 'special lights' installed on Britain's Got Talent.

The music mogul is the only judge to benefit from the trickery, having added strip lighting at his end of the table to give him a 'healthy glow'.

The X Factor star, 52, is currently holding auditions for the sixth series.

A BGT source told The Sun: 'It's hilarious. The lights are only on his part of the desk. It's an obvious attempt to get one up on the other judges.

'No matter where he turns there is more light on him than the others, which makes him look better on camera.

'It appears he has a healthy glow – but it's subtle trickery.'

Simon also has his own make-up
artist Julia Carter, who is very attentive
and reportedly touches up his powder between every act.

The Syco boss has been tweeting about the hopefuls auditioning for him and judges David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and stand-in
Carmen Electra.

Earlier
this week he wrote: 'Loving London auditions @GotTalent, saw a 17 year
old singer yesterday who is off the chart good. Carmen very cute.'

The
former Baywatch actress is temporarily filling Amanda Holden's shoes
while she is on maternity leave looking after her newborn tot Hollie
Rose.

However Carmen' reception has been rather frosty.

Fans have been booing her, while Simon's fellow panellists are fed up of his flirtatious relationship with the US beauty 39.

According to The Sun, the pair have been holding hands, stroking each other and whispering private jokes to one another.

One onlooker at the Hammersmith Apollo said: 'It's become increasingly obvious why Simon booked Carmen… they were all over each other.

'They were play-hitting each other like awkward teenagers.'

Carmen, real name Tara Leigh Patrick, also had to apologise to one act after she ignored them while Simon distracted her with a massage.
